2018 will be remembered as the year that Apple first achieved a market value of $1 trillion, as well as when growth in iPhones, Apple’s largest single product by far, began to slow. Before the introduction of the iPod—the iPhone’s precursor—Apple was a once-exciting computer maker. Its challenge now: As consumers hang onto phones longer, Apple is repositioning itself as a services provider. Apple is already generating billions of dollars in sales from iTunes (which will shutter soon in favor of dedicated apps), Apple Music, iCloud, and its share of sales in its popular App Store.
